 SPPS Athletics & Activities

Welcome to the Sts. Peter & Paul Athletics webpage. The Athletic program at Sts. Peter & Paul is an extension of the learning experience for our students.  We believe that participation in athletics provides students the opportunity to continue to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially in a Catholic environment beyond the school day.

Before participating in any sporting activities at Sts. Peter & Paul each student is required to have all of the following forms filled out completely. Athletic Forms can be obtained by clicking on the hyperlinks below.

First, read the Athletic Handbook for the current school year, fill out the form to acknowledge that you have read the handbook and agree to its rules and regulations. If you have any questions or don’t see a form you need, contact us at beddy@sppslex.org.

Fill out Handbook Acknowledgement Form and return it to the office or to Mrs. Eddy. One form can be filled out per family, however all the student/athletes must sign the form.

Grades 7/8Competitive Players will continue developing and extending fundamentals and building a solid foundation. Offensive and Defensive strategies and tactics will be covered more in depth.

Cross Country– Grades 4-8

SPPS Cross Country is a competitive but fun sport that involves weekly meets in Frankfort, KY where the runners are split into “heats” based on age group (2nd to 4th grade and 5th to 8th grade) and gender (boys and girls) with each “heat” running separately.  Each of the four groups runs about a one mile course around the State Library and Archives.  The races are timed and ribbons are handed out weekly for the top twenty places in each “heat”.  We also meet once a week (usually on Monday) for a practice run, team building, and tips on running distances.  It is low pressure, low stress and a LOT of fun…with no huge expectations except to have a good time and get some good exercise!!
